The close relation to Weekend Hussler, Peaceful State, has been the early firmer to take out the CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) this Saturday at Flemington.
The Darren Weir trained colt put up a remarkable effort to win first up at Sandown last Wednesday overcoming the perceived bias and surging hard late to win in the last stride. The Flemington 1400m looks absolutely ideal and punters were quick to snap up the $5.50, touching $4.80 before easing a fraction to $5.
He is now the joint favourite alongside stablemate and Manfred Stakes winner Cliff’s Edge at $5, who hasn’t budged from that quote. The horse at odds who has been well backed is the Mick Price trained Grunt, who is into $9 after opening $12.
